Personal Identity in the History of Philosophy

A conference at the University of Melbourne

5-6 August 2016

 

 

Keynote Speakers:

Udo Thiel (Graz)

Jennifer Whiting (Pittsburgh)

 

Conference website: http://blogs.unimelb.edu.au/pihp-conference/

 

This conference aims to bring together scholars who work on theories of personal identity in the history of philosophy or on the development of historical theories in contemporary philosophy.

 

We invite submissions of abstracts on any topic related to the conference theme. We particularly welcome contributions on figures whose contributions to debates about the self or personal identity have not received perennial attention and contributions that approach the debates from innovative questions, including, but not restricted to the following: Why did some thinkers approach personal identity purely as a topic in metaphysics, while others acknowledged a moral dimension? What, if any reasons are there for distinguishing moral selves from human beings? What role do friends, family and society play in theories of personal identity?

 

Please submit abstracts of no more than 750 words, prepared for blind review, by 15 December 2015.

HOPOS: The International Society for the History of Philosophy of Science will hold its eleventh international congress in Minneapolis, on June 22-25, 2016.  The Society hereby requests proposals for papers and for symposia to be presented at the meeting.

HOPOS is devoted to promoting serious, scholarly research on the history of the philosophy of science. We construe this subject broadly, to include topics in the history of related disciplines and in all historical periods, studied through diverse methodologies.  We aim to promote historical work in a variety of ways, but especially through encouraging exchange among scholars through meetings, publications, and electronic media. In order to encourage scholarly exchange across the temporal reach of HOPOS, the program committee especially encourages submissions that take up philosophical themes that cross time periods.

The conference language is English.  If you have inquiries about the conference or about the submission process, please write to Maarten van Dyck: maarten.vandyck [at] ugent.be.
